Sinigang is a class of sour broth with a prominent ingredient such as pork or milkfish. In the case of sinigang na hipon, the main feature is shrimp, which is hipon in Tagalog.
The Ilocanos call this Jumping Salad because the shrimp are still alive and are frisky when sprinkled with the citrus juice.
